Remembering Roseburg One Year Later

By Penny Okamoto, Executive Director of Ceasefire Oregon

On the first anniversary of the Umpqua Community College shooting, Ceasefire Oregon and the Ceasefire Oregon Education Foundation send our deepest sympathies to the families and friends of those whose lives were taken by gunfire. We hope you have found some comfort in the outpouring of love from around the nation.

We thank Chris Mintz, the U.S. Army veteran, who risked his life and was shot five times as he warned others of the shooting. We thank the first responders who ran into a terrifying situation not knowing if they would be shot.

Today, please give a moment of silence for those taken from their loved ones a year ago today.

Lucero Alcaraz, 19
Treven Taylor Anspach, 20
Rebecka Ann Carnes, 18
Quinn Glen Cooper, 18
Kim Saltmarsh Dietz, 59
Lucas Eibel, 18
Jason Dale Johnson, 33
Lawrence Levine, 67 (assistant professor)
Sarena Dawn Moore, 44

Not one life taken will we forget.
